In order to make every Bunny Day item, you’ll first need to collect a variety of eggs on your island. Whether you missed last year’s Animal Crossing Bunny Day update or just wish to finish your crafting collection, then our handy eggs-planation of the game’s various egg types will make this Easter egg hunt less of a scramble. 

Leaf Egg

Be prepared to shake a lot of trees.

As the name suggests, the Leaf Egg can be found in Animal Crossing’s trees. Simply walk up to any tree that has eggs on it, then shake it to claim your prize. The more trees you have on your island, the more Leaf Eggs you’ll be able to harvest.

Water Egg

A mighty haul is needed to craft every Bunny Day recipe.

Fishing has always been a big part of Animal Crossing games, so you’ll need to become a master fisherman if you wish to reel in some Water Eggs. During the Bunny Day event, the game’s fish silhouettes will sometimes net you a Water Egg. 

While this can make searching for rare fish rather difficult, you’ll need plenty of Water Eggs if you wish to craft every DIY recipe. 

Wood Egg

Felling trees is the trick here.

It’s no yolk that you’ll need plenty of wood eggs if you wish to craft a number of Bunny Day DIY recipes. In order to get Wood eggs, you’ll need to chop down trees to find them. Simply whip out your ax and get woodcutting to claim your prize.

Sky eggs can be a little trickier to get.

Not only do Animal Crossing’s Sky Eggs require a little more effort to obtain, but they also appear less frequently than the other egg-ceptional varieties. During the Bunny Day event, multicolored egg balloons can occasionally be spotted floating above your island. 

Simply take out your trusty slingshot and pop the balloon to secure the present. These presents can contain Bunny Day DIY recipes, so make sure you don’t miss your shot. 

Stone Egg

Stones hide more than just iron ingots.

Earth Egg

You may want to hold off on fossil collecting whenever the event is up.

Just like Animal Crossing’s fossil spots, Earth Eggs appear under the ground and can be dug up with a spade. If you find any x-shaped marks on the ground, then be prepared to get digging!

So, there you have it, every egg type and where to find them in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Be sure to check out our Animal Crossing hub for all the latest news and updates.
